Paul Kleissler has joined City Theatrical (CTI) in the newly created position of senior engineer.

Before joining CTI, Paul spent eight years designing audio/video control systems for retail environments at Creative Realities Inc. Prior to that, Kleissler worked for BASH Theatrical lighting for 13 years, starting out as a bench technician and working his way up to department head in electronics. At the same time Paul co-founded Logical Lighting Interface where he co-developed the wireless dimming system that became the de-facto standard for Broadway use. In 2003, Paul and CTI’s Head of Engineering Larry Dunn were co-inventors of City Theatrical’s WDS Wireless Data System.

Paul’s training includes a BSEET degree from DeVry University, circuit design, network administration, audio and video systems, and AMX control systems.

CTI’s Larry Dunn says, “We are very excited to have Paul join us as City Theatrical's Senior Engineer. Paul brings a combination of creativity, expertise and solid experience in entertainment technology that adds even more strength to CTI's growing capacity in product development and custom design.
